As a small group of twelve the course was generally enjoyed by all. We played the original 18 holes (I am not a fan of the newer of the three loops). The course was well presented and the greens were of a reasonable pace. Unfortunately the pace of play was not good and made for a five hour round. The... More

Played here on Friday afternoon at 1:30 and the place was packed to the gills, the course was fine but the grass in places a bit heavy on the front nine, as for playing time a snail would have moved quicker and if they think that this proper then the resort needs to listen to the R&A on slow play,...

We stayed at the hotel and this course was on our door step. Great 27 hole course, lovely greens, a bit of water, testing. Only 4 hr rounds, which was great. Staff and Marshalls were good, no problems, we were a bit worried about 5 hour rounds from holiday golfers but it was OK, maybe we we're just lucky, eh?

We played twilight, it took over 3 hours to play 9 holes. Course was in good shape, but is nothing special. Holes are very close together. We played twilight because 140 Euros for 18 holes at this course was too much money, there are much better courses for less money in the area.

We played a round on Vila Sol that took 5 hours 15 mins. Quite unacceptable. The group in front were very slow and we were assured that marshalls kept the game moving. No Marshall in sight all the way round.

Have visited this course on a number of times before but they have been working hard to improve it. A number of trees have now been cleared along with tree roots which makes the course a bit more "user friendly". They now have marshalls on the course to monitor slow play and to try to keep every one moving. Like... More

My missus and I decided to get away for a short break where she could enjoy the sun and I could get in a round or two of golf. Before travelling I booked in for a round at 12:30 and explained I was on my own and wished to join one or two others. I checked in at the shop... More

Vila Sol is made up of 3 nine holes of golf that can be switched around to make any 18 holes combination.Decent golf holes which are challenging but there are better in the area.Worth a Visit.

Compared to the other courses in the area it wasn't up to their standard. Obviously a very popular course as its reasonably priced and next to Villamoura. Party in front of us (12) had mixed ability (mixed between useless and hopeless). We had a 5 hour round behind these guys and no stewards moving them along.

See my 1st review dated October 2013. We had problems with a lack of buggies last time and 3 years later it was the same. This time we had pre-booked (13 of us now)and were told that they were all out on the course. A group of 4 checking in behind us were told no buggies were available and that... More
